Driver Stopped for Excessive Speed and Charged with Impaired Driving

Officers from the Caledon Detachment of the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) have charged a driver with impaired driving while conducting speed enforcement.

On March 8, 2022, at approximately 6:03 p.m., an officer was conducting speed enforcement on Highway 9 in the Town of Caledon. A vehicle was stopped for speeding. During the interaction, the officer suspected that the driver’s abilities were impaired and asked for a sample of their breath into an Approved Roadside Screening Device. As a result of the investigation, the driver was arrested for impaired driving and taken to an OPP Detachment where further breath tests were conducted.

Consequently, Jason SU, 52, of Scarborough was charged with:

• Operation while impaired – blood alcohol concentration (B.A.C.) over 80 mg

• Drive motor vehicle – perform stunt – excessive speed

The vehicle was impounded for seven days and the driver’s licence was suspended for a period of 90 days. The accused is scheduled to appear at the Ontario Court of Justice in Orangeville on May 19, 2022, to answer to the charge.

Drivers are reminded that no amount of alcohol or drugs in your system is safe when driving. The risk is increased when combined with all forms of aggressive driving such as racing, stunt driving, speeding, following too closely, unsafe lane changes and road rage. It all places drivers, passengers, cyclists and pedestrians at risk.

If you suspect that someone is driving while impaired by alcohol or drugs, it is important to call 9-1-1 to report it.
